Hy-Vee Expands Salad Recall
West Des Moines, IA (KROC AM News) - A recent large salad recall involving Hy-Vee stores in Minnesota and several other states has been expanded to include more products.
The Iowa-based grocery store chain Saturday announced it is recalling an additional 12 salads “due to the potential that they may be contaminated with Cyclospora.”
Hy-Vee says it became aware of the situation when it was notified that the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control Prevention expanded its investigation of the earlier outbreak.
The 12 salads are in addition to the 12 oz. Hy-Vee Bagged Garden Salad product that Hy-Vee pulled last week after initial notification of the investigation.
Hy-Vee now has 13 private label bagged salad products (all expiration dates) that are being recalled as a result.
The products were distributed to Hy-Vee grocery stores across its eight-state region of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The list below outlines the 13 products that have been recalled:

Symptoms of cyclosporiasis begin an average of seven days after ingestion of Cyclospora. Symptoms may include: watery diarrhea (most common), loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and low-grade fever. If not treated, symptoms can persist for several weeks to a month or more. People who are in poor health or who have weakened immune systems may be at higher risk for severe or prolonged illness.
